Why we collect personal information
Why do we collect your personal information? Because it helps us deliver a superior level of customer service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our services and products and focus on categories of greatest interest to you. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you posted on the latest announcements, special offers, and events that you might like to hear about.
What information we collect
There are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better service. For example, we may ask for your personal information when you're discussing a service issue on the phone with an associate, making an online inquiry, participating in an online survey, or purchasing a service or product. At such times, we may collect personal information relevant to the situation, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail address, and contact preferences; and information relating to a support or service issue. We collect information for market research purposes -- such as your occupation and information about the company you work for -- to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more valuable service. We may also collect information regarding customer activities on our web site, www.belgraviagroup.com, and on related web sites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our web sites and Internet services are of most interest to them.
If you use a bulletin board or chat room on a Belgravia Group web site you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. Belgravia Group is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.
When we disclose your information
Belgravia Group takes your privacy very seriously. Be assured that Belgravia Group does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers. There are also times when it may be advantageous for Belgravia Group to make certain personal information about you available to companies that Belgravia Group has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Belgravia Group to provide services and products to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, fulfill customer orders, deliver services and products to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with Belgravia Group's policies. Without such information being made available, it might be difficult for you to purchase service and products, have products delivered to you, receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our services and products, or access certain services, offers, and content on the Belgravia Group web site.
At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
How we protect your information
Belgravia Group takes precautions -- including administrative, technical, and physical measures -- to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
The Belgravia Group web site may use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on certain web pages where personal information is required. In instances such as this, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it's transmitted over the Internet.
Integrity of your personal information
Belgravia Group has safeguards in place to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is used. Naturally, you always have the right to correct the personal information you have provided.
Cookies and other technologies
If, however, you prefer not to enable cookies, we suggest that you consult with your local IT technician, support staff or other person with expertise, to have them disable cookies in your Internet browser. Please note that certain features of the Belgravia Group web site may not be available once cookies are disabled.
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Belgravia Group will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.
In some of our e-mail messages we use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the Belgravia Group web site. When a customer clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the e-mail.
In addition we may use pixel tags -- tiny graphic images -- to tell us what parts of our web site customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site.
Pixel tags also enable us to send e-mail messages in a format customers can read. And they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to assure that we're only sending messages that are of interest to our customers.
Our companywide commitment to your privacy
As we said, Belgravia Group takes protecting your privacy very seriously. To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate these guidelines to Belgravia Group employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company. In addition, Belgravia Group supports industry initiatives to preserve privacy rights on the Internet and in all aspects of electronic commerce. And we do not knowingly solicit personal information from minors or send them requests for personal information.
Belgravia Group's web site may have links to the sites of other companies. Belgravia Group is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies. Belgravia Group
